Makenzie & Samuel

After two years of shadowing a local Virginia photographer, I finally got the chance to shoot my own wedding completely solo! Makenzie is my cousin, and when she asked if I could be the photographer, I said yes immediately. She knew this was my first wedding job on my own but she still put her trust and confidence in me and I'm forever thankful for that. It was a day filled with laughs, tears, dancing with a camera in hand (I was half guest half photographer), and full on hustle. Getting all these moments right was so important to me, and I plan on taking the lessons learned and experiences had from this first job into any future opportunities that come my way.
